An interview with Harvey Milk / interviewed by Greg Gordon.


Published 1978


"Harvey Milk sits down with Greg Gordon of IMRU (a weekly one-hour radio show made by a group of volunteers focusing on issues affecting the LGBT community in Southern California). Milk discusses being sworn in as a ""candidate who is gay, not a gay candidate"". Discussing the statewide primary for attorney general, the city supervisor addresses the need for politicians to get involved in minority issues. Milk speaks with disdain about privileged or closeted gays who either don't vote or vote against gay rights, comparing them to ""the wealthy Jews in Nazi Germany"", and why he was never supported by gay political clubs such as the Alice B. Toklas Democratic Club. Milk also addresses anti-establishment politics and the necessary evil of the two-party political ""system""."
